The proper type of puller for the 3V crank is usually referred to as a Chhrysler puller. It has extensions that go into the bolt hole so that the actual puller is not pushing against the snout. Pullers with the other type of jaws (like Harbor Freight) don't work well.




A typical install tool looks like this, this is a Lisle, but there are several makers available.

I got this one for under $15 from Harbor Freight.

Bruce, I bought that same installer from Harbor freight. However, none of the threaded pieces in the kit are the same diameter as the new crank pulley bolt that I bought from Ford. It looks like that is a puller for alternators and water pumps, but doesn't look like it will fit the crank pulley. Have you used this kit with success on the crank pulley?

That looks like small puller of some kind to me too. The Harbor catalog does not show a balancer installer, the last time I looked.

Just bought it on Friday. It is a pulley puller and installer kit for accesory pulleys. I'm waiting for some 8 rib pulleys and an overdrive damper to arrive. I was hoping to be able to use it for the damper also. More than likely I'll use a long bolt to pull the damper on. There are a few fastener stores nearby that carry a wide variety of bolts.

Is it possible to get a bolt which will be too long? Thanks hammer for the bolt specs!

That would be the easiest fix. Go to Lowes and get a bolt just like the install bolt that would have come with the pulleys. No reason why it wouldn't work.

That wasn't my original suggestion because I didn't realize you weren't trying to find a "right this minute" solution.

i would just be very careful not to bottom the bolt
out, we don't want the damaged bolt threads to
mess with the crank threads as the bolt comes back
out.

Where do you live? I have an unused Steeda bolt, but as suggested it might be simplier to get one at lowes etc than to pay postage to get this one.

(I will go measure my Steeda bolt length and edit this post...BRB)

EDIT:

Steeda Bolt = 2 3/8" or 60 mm


Stock Ford bolt = 2" or 51.5mm


Side by side
